Opportunities for Graduate Students

Virtual Graduate Student Writing Group

On Fridays at 10 am the Center for 21st Century Studies will host a virtual graduate student writing group. Part support group, part practical tips and strategies, we’ll have a brief presentation from a scholar on a writing-related topic (it’ll be different every week), and then we will open it up to the group to discuss our own writing projects, progress, and roadblocks. Come as regularly or as infrequently as you’re able; this is a space intended to be casual, supportive, and practical, and we’ll talk about different issues each time.

Hosted by C21 Deputy Director Maureen Ryan and with a rotating cast of experts you can bring your questions to. Feel free to suggest a topic, from citation management software to creating outlines to staying organized in a big writing project like a dissertation.
